Ishnah is one of the thieves that Veil hadn't approached at All's Alley, the one whose eyes had lit up when she'd carved the symbol for the Ghostbloods into the table at which they were meeting.[1]

Later, she introduces herself to Veil as an excellent writer, one who can take dictations. She claims to have experience moving in the market underground in the city of Urithiru.[2]

She tells Veil that she wants to join her organization, to which Veil responds that they are not recruiting. Still, she pleads with her:

"The world is wrong now. Nothing makes sense. But you ... your group ... you know things. I don't want to be blind anymore."[2]


Ishnah is a short, young woman who wears a havah.[1]

She has straight Alethi hair, dark brown eyes, bright red painted lips, and sharp black eyebrows enhanced with makeup. Veil recognizes her, and sees that she is shorter than she'd seemed while sitting down.[2]
